Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

 Gloria Allred  On Monday March 5, 2018,  WSA180305 Elaine interviewed Gloria Allred, who shares her journey from teacher to attorney advocating for women's rights for 40 years. Gloria talks of what sustains her in her committment to social change.  Gloria's hope is that this year will be known as the Year of Empowerment for Women, and she certainly is a mentor as she confronts rich and powerful men Harvey Weinstein, Judge Roy Moore, Bill Cosby, O.J. Simpson and even the President of the United States as she represents courageous but hurt women.


Erinn BrockovichErin Brockovich was our second guest on Monday's show of 7/9/18,  WSA180709  . Erin shares her story on becoming one of the most successful consumer activists in taking on PG&E in Hinkley, CA, in 1993, about which a movie was made called Erin Brockovich. Erin encourages us to break free from the box of other's expectations and to develop the self-esteem needed  for the long and persistent fight for justice.  Erin comes to Sonoma County to help those who were victims of last October wildfire storm that appears to have been sparked by PG&E's negligent behaviour in protecting their equipment from nearby brush and trees as required as a public utility. Erin warns of legislation that would shield PG&E from accountability in future wildfire disasters in California, inspite of the corporation's vast wealth.
